Sound Effects ! PLAM!

I bought a Monica comic the other day after reading one at Vitor's house. Lots of people of all ages collect them here. To my surprise, the one I bought made me laugh out loud several's not just for the kiddies, folks!

It also took me back to when I was an avid Archie Comics collector. I will always hold a special place in my heart for Jughead. Archie was always way too busy messing around with Betty and Veronica. Jughead Jones LOVED food, especially hamburgers...way more than girls. . Plus, he had some major huevos to wear that crown to high school every day.


Anyway, Monica one ups Archie when it comes to sounds. I love Portuguese sound effects, and these comics are full of them. Here are a few:


lightning bolt!

falling down

the broken bike sound

Ker Plunk


A mix of a leopard growl, a howl from Cascao
Arranha is "scratch!"
Morde is "Bite!"

morning walk

I went for a walk in the neighborhood and took some pictures of beautiful things.
